Top 10 Good Metal Songs that Should Never Be Covered

These songs don't need another cover they are perfect as they are

The Top Ten

1 One - Metallica

Korn did a ok job at covering this but this song is so perfect that you might as well not cover it at all - christangrant

2 Painkiller - Judas Priest

Death cover is really very good, actually one of the best metal covers of all time. - Metal_Treasure

The only band who covered this song perfectly is Death - christangrant

3 Holy Diver - Dio
4 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

Yes, Machine Head cover is the best available whereas Cradle of Filth only butchered this masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

Machine Head did a good job of covering this song but Cradle of Flith ruined this song with their cover - christangrant

5 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

I don't even expect someone to attempt this song anytime soon. Recording of this song took as much production time as the rest of the album. And Hansi records individually each track of the multi-layered backing vocals, he doesn't use studio tricks. - Metal_Treasure

6 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath
7 Holy Wars...The Punishment Due - Megadeth
8 Fade to Black - Metallica
9 Walk - Pantera V 1 Comment
10 Stargazer - Rainbow

Yep, several very good metal bands did covers but even Dream Theater version wasn't good enough. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian
12 Panic Attack - Dream Theater
